I have a Schengen visa valid until the 8th of July and I want to apply for a visa from the 12th of July is that possible or would they refuse it?
It is possible.
- Generally speaking, any short, successful visit (no overstays, no incidents) will increase the chances that you will get another one.
- If you apply for a long visit directly after a previous one, that decreases your chances since there are fewer ties to your home country. The 90/180 rule would apply to any combination of C visa, too.
- You are supposed to apply from your place of residence, and time might be short to get things done before July 12th.
